I baked these at 400 for 45 min to crisp them instead frying. I then brushed on the glaze that I had added a couple of dashes of tamari soy and baked at 450 until a little caramelized. Delicious!

These were excellent! I love lime, so I will be making these again often. One trick to try for those who like crispier chicken wings is to let the wings sit in the flour (in the refrigerator, or course) for at least 30 minutes, longer if you have the time. It helps the flour to stick and makes the wings crispier. This is the secret to making them just like restaurant wings!

This is a wonderfully different way to do chicken. I hate frying anything so after preparing this recipe as written a couple of times and having my kids fall in love with it I made a simple change. Now I use boneless chicken breast halves and cut them each into three even pieces. Then I bake them at 350 in the oven for about 30 minutes and finish with the same honey/lime treatment!
